Ylvis does Josh Groban...

Back at the Oslo concert in May, Joshs’ twin? (Vegard Ylvisåker) made a surprise appearance towards the end of the show.



Along with his brother Bård, they are a Norwegian comedy duo/band “Ylvis” who are now known around the world for their viral hit “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say).



Previously Vergard has impersonated Josh, including a visit to a radio station and getting to the venue where Josh was performing. See this post from October 2011.

A new clip has been released on their TV show of what happened at the Oslo concert.



The transcript translation is below. You can also see this by clicking on the “Captions” icon on the clip.
Bård (B): Absolutely! But moving on, now we’re going to talk about this season’s little pastiche. That you look like Josh Groban. (** A pastiche is a work of visual art, literature, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates.)

Vegard (V) – Yes.

B: A topic we often need to address.

V: Yes.

B: Some background information, in our first season you got pretty far. You impersonated Josh Groban in a radio interview and you checked into a hotel as him, and more. But you didn’t achieve your main goal: Standing on the stage as Josh Groban.

V: No. I only got as far as right outside the backstage area and I realized it’s quite difficult getting through the security there, as Josh Groban. Unless you have teamed up with Josh Groban.

B: Yes, and this time around you had.

V: Yes!

B: What was the plan?

V: The plan was, that Josh and me… Or Joshy-boy, as I call him. We wanted to see if the audience in Speeectrum Other guest (OG): Speeectrum?

B: Speeectrum

V: If they would notice a difference when I entered the stage as Josh for the extra number.

B: How did it go?

V: It went OK, I mean… The only problem was right before going on state, I realised I didn’t know any of his songs. I only know that one song.

B: You raise me up. And that’s so typical of you to realise that the minute you’re about to walk on stage.

V: I’m just thinking “This is a cool idea” and then… But it worked out fine.

B: Ok, great. Let’s watch Vergard as a stand-in on Josh Groban’s encore.

[~~ CONCERT FOOTAGE ~~]

Josh (J): I usually come off right now for a little break.

V: Ok. Is it OK?

J: Yes, going well, going well. Good luck out there.

V: Just a coffee break. We have this vibe. He doesn’t always need to say what’s on his mind. I just get it. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, and then it turns out he’s had a cold. No. It is a strong bond. It is.

[~~ CONCERT FOOTAGE ~~]

V: Alright, alright!

J: Alright.

V: Oh yeah, here we go. Thank you. You time me.

J: Ok, go get ‘em pal.

[~~ FOOTAGE OF VERGARD ON-STAGE ~~]

V: (Singing/English translation..) Tore Tang, an old man. (Thank you.)

V: (Singing/English translation..) The whole town knows of him. He who lives on old bread and water. Tore Tang. (Thank you so much.)

[~~ FOOTAGE OF JOSH JOING VERGARD ON-STAGE ~~]

J: Can I have a hug?

[~~ STUDIO FOOTAGE ~~]

OG: Beautiful!

B: Yes, it’s great!

OG: Really, beautiful. But when you’re standing next to each other, you’re not really that much alike. You’ve got the “extravagant”hair, apart from that…

B: I think it’s mostly due to the outfits. I look more like Skavlan than you look like Groban.

V: You don’t look like Skavlan.

B: I don’t look like Skavlan?

V: You don’t look like Skavlan.

B: So this is not a photo from VG last week, then?

V: Identical. As two drops of… gasoline. Not water.

Nerdist Podcoast...

It's taken me a couple of days to post this, but here's the link for the Nerdist Podcast - http://www.nerdist.com/2013/07/nerdist-podcast-josh-groban/.

It's quite long - almost 1½ hours. But be warned, DO NOT LISTEN if you are easily offended as there is (gasp!) profanity!

Personally, I really enjoyed it, but I know there will be many fans that won't, so don't say you haven't been warned.

An Evening in NYC (2009)...

Back in 2008, Josh performed a special show at Rose Hall in New York. The evening was recorded and released through PBS in 2009.


The DVD was able to be purchased through the PBS store, but sadly it doesn't appear that you can still purchase it here, but you might be able to locate a copy through eBay.

Anyway, Josh's YouTube Channel has recently posted 3 clips from the concert so I thought I'd post them here for your enjoyment. Make sure you watch in HD.

A global star for over a decade, Josh Groban has recently released his sixth album All That Echoes, which expands his reach into rewarding new musical territory.

Join Josh every Sunday from 9am, as he plays all your smooth favourites and some of his too.

And following Josh's 9am Sunday show, Richard Wilkins will return for his second show of the weekend from 10am to 1pm, expanding his role in the smoothfm family to become our weekend mornings announcer every Saturday and Sunday from 10am.
I'm guessing the segments have been pre-recorded and it will be interesting to see what songs he chooses.
